In the classroom courses, methods and tools are extensively trained through exercises with related discussions. We use flipchart, brown paper and the walls.

For the best possible involvement and learning, time is spent every day on repetition and related discussions.

In the online courses, the participant individually train methods and tools in the afternoon. The course instructor is avaiable for guidance during this time. Every afternoon one hours is spent on questions and answers to the exercises and theories presented.

To get the most out of the course, we recommend that you complete a Six Sigma improvement project. Several of the course exercises can then be carried out on your own problem statement. You also have the opportunity to gain valuable views on your project from the course instructor and the participants.

Diploma & certification

Diploma: To receive a diploma for successful completion of the course, you must have attended both sessions (modules) with presence at least 6 of 8 course days.

Certification, level 1: At the end of the final module, the participant may take a multiple-choice test with 40 questions. If 75% or more are answered correctly, a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certificate Level 1 is awarded. The test is taken at Aksena Academy webpage and is included in the course fee. The test is optional to take.

Certification, level 2: To be certified Green Belt, participation is required in accordance with the requirements for the diploma (above) as well as approved completion of a Six Sigma improvement project within 12 months after the course completion.
